Uma - the old Umeå

Uma is a historical society started in 1991. We studies viking, medieval and renaissance periods' (600-1600 AD) history, focusing mainly on Western Europe. The society's name, Uma, is an ancient name for Umeå. Uma belongs to the international organisation Society for Creative Anachronism, SCA. The purpose of the society is to allow members to make practical use of their historical knowledge, as well as to recreate the environments and feelings of days of yore. This means studies and practice, but most of all creativity. The Society for Creative Anachronism was started in 1966, in the Californian Univesity of Berkely. Today SCA has around 50 000 members around the world, of those about 600 are in Sweden, where it has been established since 1984.
